You may not have experienced every single one of these, or even agree with them all – but here are 13 things that we were really glad happened and which left us with a big smile when they did!

Finally! You reach your target on a diet and get back into your favourite old jeans. You don’t even care that they’ve gone way out of fashion.

Simon Cowell put together five boys who’d auditioned separately on The X Factor in 2010. They went by the name of One Direction and we and the rest of the entire planet fell in love with the new boy band and couldn’t stop smiling!

 

3. The show will be back!

The first series of a new programme is brilliant and you don’t want it to end. Then, as the final episode comes to a close, the announcer says a new series is coming back next year… Yeah!

Sitting in a sporting venue, somebody starts a Mexican wave… And yes, it reaches you… Ready! Rise up, arms in the air then settle back in your seat. Such a blast!

 

5. He asks you out

He’s so good-looking and you’ve fancied him for ages, and then the cute boy at school asks you out. Yes, little old you!

 

6. The lashes worked at last

Despite many attempts in the past. Success at last… The false eyelashes you managed to put on were not only dead straight but they also looked great!

 

7. The first time you saw Friends

Back in 1994, a brilliant show called Friends came across the pond and to a TV near you. Everybody loved the diversity of the characters and decided which one of the them they were most like. You were Monica with Phoebe rising…

 

8. On tour with the girls

No more holidaying with parents. You’re now old enough to have your first holiday abroad with your mates. And, despite the odd fall-out and fall over, you couldn’t stop smiling as you had fun in the sun!

 

9. Those shoes are half-price!

They’ve been catching your eye in that posh shop for weeks, but they’re so expensive. Then you saw it, a sale tag on those gorgeous shoes. Get in! And Get ’em on!

 

10. You got it nailed…

For one whole week your nails were all a good, long, matching length. Happy face.

Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams made up. Thank goodness for that. The ‘Angels’ really did their (‘could it be) magic’ there!

 

12. You realised Gogglebox is genius

Some bods at Channel 4 thought it’d be a good idea to get different households to watch the same shows on telly and film them doing so. What nonsense, we thought. We were so wrong. Gogglebox is the best!

 

13. When two became one

Two bands we loved individually joined forces and so it happened that Busted and McFly became McBusted and it really, really worked! So much so that they made some fab records and filled out big arenas on tour. Rock out lads!
